Looking for Oasis Camp leaders!
We are looking forward to an amazing camp experience as we share God’s love with a new group of campers at Guelph Bible Conference Centre. We are once again looking to assemble a team of passionate volunteers who want to live out the great commission and make a lasting impact on the lives of children.
Camp will run the week of July 31 to August 4. Our theme for this week of camp will be “Stellar – Shine Jesus’ Light”.
As in prior years, we will be asking all potential volunteers to complete a brief application form (please note: references are only required for first-time leaders). The leadership team will select leaders with first priority being given to those who attend GBC, are involved with GBC’s ministries, or who have a family connection to GBC
If you have an interest in being involved in this year’s camp ministry, please complete an application form and return to Director Dan Chapman by Sunday March 12.
We’re looking forward to another great week of camp this year!

The foundation of a building is critically important for the stability of the structure that sits on it. In many ways our faith and relationship with God needs the same thing. How is your foundation.

Thought for the Day: Final thoughts on developing character like Jesus
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been challenged personally by what I’ve been sharing about developing positive character traits using Jesus as our guide.
The last one I want to share is one that Jesus showed so often: Humility
Jesus had every opportunity and right to demand praise and honour for His miracles and teachings, but He never did. Even when the crowds sought to make Him king, He rushed away from them. He didn’t want to become a sideshow performance that people could enjoy. Rather, He wanted to seek and save the lost and offer forgiveness for sinful people. Yes, He could have traveled around in order to show off His powers in other towns, but He chose not to. As we read in Philippians 2, he humbled himself, became nothing, acting like a servant. Wow! What an example.
So, that’s it. That’s what I’d like to share. As for some final thoughts I’d say this:
The world doesn’t need more role models, it needs more of Jesus—the ultimate role model. People will not find a better person to emulate positive character traits from than Jesus Christ himself. With that in mind though, its important to remember that Jesus was God and so was perfect. While we can learn from him, and his example, we have to be careful how we measure ourselves against him too. We’ll never be perfect this side of heaven like he was so the key then becomes using him as a guide and being the best possible versions of ourselves we’re capable of being. It’s a tough challenge but a worthy endeavor. Strive!
In His grip,
